Christine Andrade teaches 5th grade at Elizabeth Carter Brooks Elementary School In New Bedford.

She was nominated by the mother of a former student of hers. From the hundreds of entries submitted in December, the one sent in by Colleen Barriteau was chosen.

We surprised Miss Andrade with our friends from Domino's Pizza and sponsor Bank 5 just before noontime today. Congratulations Christine Andrade, and thank you to you and to all of the other great teachers here on the Southcoast for your great work and dedication.
